Sucks, man.

Last night I was riding from my house up to the lab to do about 2 minutes worth of work when I heard this "sritch"ing sound followed immediately by my crank not turning. I had hit a bump and somehow the rear derailleur cable had gotten hooked on the back of the pedal. I totally shredded the cable housing. This was after ~4 miles in on an 11 mile trip. Since I was already past the worst hill I figured, screw it I'll keep going. It was a lot of fun to ride with one gear for 18 miles. I ended up shoving a stick in the rear der parallelogram to keep it off of the small gear. I had to laugh it off as cadence training. Good times!
